Welcome to the Special Event Zone page. On this page you can find information about motor events and pop-up rally’s in Ocean City. Special Event Zones are in place during motor events due to the high volume of motor vehicles and pedestrians on/near the roadways.

All Ocean City & Worcester County roads will be designated as a Special Event Zone starting Tuesday, September 21 through Sunday, September 26. Speed limits will be reduced to 30 mph on Coastal Highway. Additionally, fines will be increased for violations and violators are subject to arrest.
